What does search all symbols mean?

Under the settings in Code Style > Scala > Other Settings

There is a checkbox for Search all symbols (include locals)

I was wondering what that did?

Thanks,
Ben

If you want to find local symbol with some identifiable name, you can enable this checkbox, then press Ctrl+Alt+Shift+N, and you can find any local method or variable (not only fields and top level methods) with some name pattern.

does this work for java as well, or only for scala? i mean, it's a really weird place for such an option...

This option only for Scala. It's not very useful option even for Scala (I find it useful only once). But reason for this option is that Scala has inner methods (Java hasn't).
Currently I work to remove this section with Scala plugin options.
There will be another section. Also Scala formatter options will be joined with Java formatter options.
